Hi All!

Finally it is done - Other Minds, Issue #20 has gone live!
beside the usual sections, this Issue brings you the following contributions:
  • Tainted Treasure by José Enrique Vacas de la Rosa. Ideas and rules for handling tainted treasures in TOR
  • Creatures of Middle-earth: Ogres by Thomas Morwinsky. Background and rules for a new monster in Middle-earth for use with MERP, TOR and AME
  • Creatures of Middle-earth: Were-worms of the West by Brian Seligman. A new creature for Middle-earth for use with AME.
  • Orc-tribes of Wilderland by José Enrique Vacas de la Rosa. Ideas for more orcish variety in Wilderland for use with TOR.
  • Harondor TA 1645 by Galendae. A great article about this province of Gondor and accompanying background to the even more fabulous map of the same region.
  • Hobbit migrations by Thomas Morwinsky. Some background about the various areas settled by Hobbits throughout the Third Age, together with a bit of demographics.
Have fun with reading this Issue and please give us feedback - especially mistakes etc. you spot. Speaking from experience, I am pretty sure we will need at least one update to weed out all of them ;)
And please share this announcement freely to all those interested - as well as the Other Minds Facebook group. We welcome everyone - the bigger our community, the better!

You can download the Issue under this link.

For all the OM team
Thomas Morwinsky

Very enjoyable! I'm only about halfway through, but wanted to offer a trio of minor corrections/tweaks/what-have-you:

On page 14, the Facebook "Wargaming in Middle-Earth" group entry is unexpectedly cut off. I think the graphic may be covering additional lines of text.

On page 16, in the Jon Hodgson section is a sentence that read "In addition to hisd Patreon page ( Jon has set up his own company Handiwork Games which can be found under https://handiwork.games/." Based on context, "hisd" should be his, and the parentheses should be a comma.

On page 32, the ogre stats for MERP are partially cut off on the left side. The column title reads "ame" instead of "Name," the columns are for "gre" instead of "Ogre," etc. It's not a huge issue except that I'm not sure what the first footnote says.

Thanks very much for the feedback! I have already assembled some other mistakes, oversights etc. (and expect some more to come) and the ones you found will be added and included in the fixed version of the Issue which is due shortly.

Best
